It is the monthly Moodboard reveal at Scrap Plezier today, and May's moodboard is divine.
Dont you agree?
Anyhoo....here is my take on it - using Kaisercraft of course :)
I love Kaisercraft Collectibles diecuts – they are so very versatile and
match collections other than the one they were produced for.
For this layout, I used a piece of Kaisercraft Indigo Skies as the base. I
gesso’ed the centre of the paper so I could apply some wet mediums. After the
gesso was dry I took a Kaisercraft stencil and used white texture paste through
it. When that was dry I coloured the design with Prima Metallic Accents semi
watercolour paints. After that dried I smooched on some Glimmermist in Crème de
Chocolat and Mr Hueys Colour Mist in Powder Blue. Again, after that was dry I
did some stamping with a Kaisercraft Stamp – Vintage Fence and Ranger Distress
Ink in Walnut Stain.
Finally I could start of the paper part of my layout. I
cut down 3 sheets of paper from the Kaisercraft 6.5 x 6.5 paper pads – Blue Bay
and Wildflower. I cut some sections from Scrapmatts Hexagon Mesh chipboard and
coloured them with Pinecone VersaColour. I also inked all pieces of patterned
paper, including the base piece in Pinecone. I stuck the photo, papers and
chipboard down and then grabbed my collection of Collectibles, lol. This is
where the versatility comes in – I used diecuts from 3 other collections – Ubud
Dreams, Sea Breeze, and Time Machine. I used one of the diecuts as my title,
added some hexagon brads, and finally some Kaisercraft Pearls.
I would love to see what you create with this awesome moodboard.
The National Scrapbook Day Mini Crop is in full swing at Creative Inspiration, and boy have the DT come up with some awesome challenges for you all.
My challenge to you all is to create a project using absolutely no patterned paper.
I have used some new Lindy's Magical Shakers in Bavarian Blue, Lederhausen Laurel, and Octoberfest Orange on the background, after applying a coat of white gesso, and then spraying with water. Once I was happy with the placement and intensity of the magicals, I allowed the background to dry overnight before applying a Kaisercraft stencil with Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Black Ash. Once that was dry I took a Creative Expressions stamp from the Arty Background stamp set and using Hero Arts India Ink in Black I stamped around where I wanted to place my photo. Finally I sprayed and splattered with Heidi Swapp Colour Shine in Tinsel. Once everything was dry I added some twine I had coloured with the Heidi Swapp, then mounted my photo on some music note tissue paper that came wrapped around a bunch of flowers, and placed it in position with some foam mounts. I finished off by adding various bits and bobs from my stash.
You have until Sunday 14th May to play along. Cant wait to see what you create.
It is reveal day at My Time To Craft for the new fortnightly challenge. This one is all about males. The DT have come up with some wonderful creations, you really should pop on over and check them out!!
I am up on the Scrap Plezier blog with a Kaisercraft reveal today.
This is actually one of my most favourite layouts of late!! It came together so very easily and I used the new Indigo Skies collection. Love that the collection is blue, and I only have boys to scrap!!
I went for a minimal look with lots of white space and ended up with a
monochromatic layout with the black and white photo. I used some Distress Ink
in Blueprint and mixed it with water, and using a makeup sponge, I dabbed it
around all four sides of the white cardstock background. I then smooched some
on acetate and added it to the background. I cut a banner shape from one of the
patterned papers and tore one of the other pieces in half and used both sides.
I added 2 word strips, as well as some butterflies, and 2 word blocks from the
Die cut pack as well as the sticker sheet. I finished off with some of the wood
veneer from the pack that is part of the collection. I really wanted to add
another colour to the layout but couldn’t decide which one to use, so ended up
using some black sequins. I finished off by outlining the edges of the
cardstock with a black Sharpie pen and used the same Sharpie for my journalling. What do you think??
